CENTRAL PARK By Kiki & Joost for North Sea Jazz Festival

North Sea Jazz is a leading event in the international jazz scene with more than a thousand musicians playing on fifteen different stages and attracting talents as Alicia Keys, Herbie Hancock and Erykah Badu amongst others. North Sea Jazz asked Kik&Joost an intervention that would rethink the architecture

of their central areas and the food courts, keeping
in mind the sustainability of the design. The studio produced a massive modular installation in Douglas wood, that despite the scale is conceived to be reused and reshaped every year, adding a warm vibe to the 4000 m2 arena.

Studio Kiki&Joost also designed the food courts and two raised terraces with large rows of trees making an impressive central avenue. From the terrace there are graphic and bold arc lamps hanging, produced in house, while the central stage benefits from a more expressive architecture. After the invitation to design a large art installation for Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, the North Sea Jazz festival gave them again the chance to connect the dots between design and architecture, with music in the background.
